Dexter Lawrence hints he didn’t think he was offside on game-losing play

Brad Mills-USA TODAY Sports See for yourself whether you think Lawrence should have been penalized Dexter Lawrence took responsibility for his outcome-altering offside penalty Thursday night, saying on Friday that ‘I can’t make that mistake.” Lawrence, though, also hinted that he did not believe he was offside on a play that gave Washington’s Dustin Hopkins a second chance to kick a game-winning field goal against the New York Giants. “I’m supposed to move when the ball moves,” said Lawrence, who was lined up right next to the Washington snapper on the...

Washington 30, Giants 29: 5 plays that changed the game

Washington 30, Giants 29: 5 plays that changed the game

Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports Giants can’t get out of their own way in loss to Washington The New York Giants were undisciplined in their disappointing Week 2 30-29 loss to the Washington Football Team on Thursday night. There were several opportunities for New York to secure a divisional road victory, but mistakes and inexcusable penalties brought the Giants to their fifth straight 0-2 start to a season. Big Blue has now dropped two winnable games to start this season. The defense looks like a shell of its 2020 self, despite the upgrade in personnel. The offense...

‘Things I think’ after Giants gift wrap a victory for the Washington Football Team

Photo by Rob Carr/ The Giants earned Thursday night’s loss to Washington One of the things I heard some of the veteran New York Giants players talk about during training camp is that a team that has experienced a high volume of losing, which the Giants have more than any team in the league the last four seasons, has to learn how not to lose before they can learn to win. Well, here we are. The Giants fell to 0-2 on Thursday night, suffering a gut-wrenching 30-29 defeat at the hands of the Washington Football Team. This is a game the Giants absolutely LOST. Daniel...
